Hello all,

My name is Chris- I live in upstate SC, and have for about 16 years or so.  Love the area, no intention of ever leaving.  I've ridden for 25 years, plus time on dirtbikes as a kid.  Most of my time has been spent on Harleys and BMWs (with a few random Hondas and Suzukis in the mix). 

I've wanted something smaller/lighter to ride, and have always loved the look (and sound) of Ducatis.  I've been looking for a while, and finally picked up a 2009 696.  The bike is clean and unmolested- other than a tail tidy, it appears to be completely stock.  Low miles as well- maintenance unknown, so I assume hasn't had much, if any.

I also enjoy working on bikes, and generally have a project or two going on.  I've got a lot to learn with this bike, so we'll see how it goes.  I'm excited about it.  I've already done a fair bit of research, but now comes the hands on learning. 

This site has the reputation of being an awesome resource, so thanks for having me.

Welcome  waytogo

The bike is old enough to require belts, fluids, tires, maybe valves check, chain, air filter, oil filter and ...

230,000 km/fifteen years - loving it
